Beast Gets Schooled by JK Simmons in Insurance Commercial [Video]

Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

At some point, commercials for insurance stopped being about the drama that befalls us after tragedy and became sources of comedy and entertainment. But one of the more memorable campaigns belongs to Farmers Insurance and its spokescharacter Professor Nathaniel Burke of the University of Farmers, who is played by JK Simmons. The cult-astic actor, who appeared as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, has maintained his Marvel connections by appearing with X-Men: First Class's Beast in this cross-promotional spot. Beast -- not played by Nicholas Hoult here -- is an "X-change student" from "the X-Men school," whose counterpart is used as target practice by Havok (who is played by Lucas Till in a scene from the movie).

(Also, it is revealed pretty early in the podcast linked to above, so just be warned if you are avoiding the spoiler.)

Over at PAX East, the guys at Piki Geek were able to capture some footage of a Portal 2 demonstration, which featured some of the intro, and an appearance by J.K. Simmons as new main character Cave Johnson, Aperture Science founder and CEO. The shaky-cam video doesn't contain story spoilers, unless you consider the game's humorous tutorial or the existence of J.K. Simmons a spoiler, but you're already aware of those things after having read the previous sentence, so what harm can watching the video do?
